Spook seems to have been an outdoor cat for quite some time. He came to us with rather large sores behind his ears (probably due to scratching from a yeast infection in his ears). Spook has tested positive for FIV, which is comparable to a feline AIDS. Only cats can contract it. As the disease progresses, his immune system will not work sufficiently. He will need to go to an indoor home, without other cats, as other cats can contract the disease through a bite, while fighting. Spook has shown us that he does love peoples attention. He is beginning to catch colds easily and his eyes do get weepy frequently. Spook is looking for a quiet retirement home. Do you have a spot for him in your home and in your heart?
